23rd January in Dalit History – A welcome was accorded to Dr. Ambedkar by Samata Sainik Dal

23 January 1933: A welcome was accorded to Dr. Ambedkar by Samata Sainik Dal in Mumbai[1].

Dr. Ambedkar returned from the third round table conference to Bombay (now Mumbai) by the Gange ship on 23 January 1933. Along with him was Sir Purshottamdas Thakurdas. On the landing, he was given an enthusiastic reception by the Samata Sainik Dal. Amongst the prominent leaders Dr. Ambedkar was the only one who had attended all the three round table conferences and pushed for the rights of depressed classes (now called dalits). Gandhi and Malviya did not participate in the first and third round table conferences while Jinnah did not participate in the sessions of second round table conference.
